Crystal of the Month (Opalite)
Have you ever experienced that subtle twisting in your stomach? The feeling that jumped in just in time to help you make the right choice? Maybe you've had goosebumps rise up on your arms or you've heard that little voice in the back of your head saying, “Nope. Go the other way.”
That's your higher self talking. Your intuition. The part of you that is fighting every day to help you grow for the better.
This month, we're talking about Opalite!
Opalite is a man-made stone but can at times form naturally out of opalized volcanic ash. While this is rare, you'd usually find a natural Opalite stone in spots around Africa and Brazil.
With it's iridescent quality, Opalite shows off a variety of colors including white, yellow, blue, pink, and lavender. It's sometimes known as Tiffany Stone, Opalized Fluorite, Ice Cream Opal, or Purple Opal.
Tuning into personal power is something that this stone excels at. Confidence, self-worth, and inner strength are brought into the spotlight as you begin working with Opalite. It's calming, gentle energy, alongside it's affinity for individual empowerment, allows you to move forward with cool confidence and make positive changes in your life path.
Opalite works well with the Third Eye chakra (Ajna) and the Crown chakra (Sahasrara). Alongside these chakras, Opalite has the ability to raise your consciousness beyond the everyday understanding and into the realms of intuition, psychic abilities, the Divine, and the spirit world – your higher self and greatest good.
As with all crystals, Opalite can be used during meditation. It is especially helpful with achieving balance. Whether you're looking to balance career and romance, family and friends, or something even less tangible such as the masculine and feminine qualities we all possess, or to go even further, reality and fantasy – this stone is an amazing tool!
Let's tune into the energy of Opalite for the next few weeks. Take confident strides toward positive change, and believe in yourself and your abilities!
